DRIVERS have been blown away after realising that fixing easy car repairs can save them thousands on garage bills.
With the high cost of living crisis continuing to bite, many drivers are trying to find ways to save money on car repairs.
Handily, a car expert, @conggeshuoche, took to social media to share a few hacks to fix your car without having to bring it to a garage.
Firstly, the car expert explained how to change your air filter, which can be easy and cheap to do.
He said: “Don’t wreck my car, it’s alright. I spend £650 in a repair shop to fix it, and it’s not necessary.
“Look, there’s a mechanism, squeeze it, just dropped, then press and hold the little clip on the top and buckle it.
“Take it out from below. Look how dirty the air conditioner filter is. It only costs £1 online.
“Let this arrow point down; finally, put this little cover on it. Once aligned, one click is all it takes.
Then he said that there are many other repairs that drivers can do without having to go to a garage.
He continued: “When you press the key. This truck can’t pop up by itself, can it? Don’t rush to the repair shop – come and see. Take off this plaque lightly.
“This has a small cover. After removing it, you will see that there is a spring inside that has three holes; it’s now in first gear.
“The default is to hang a file; let’s push hard. Just hook it to the second hole.
“Then let’s try again and see if the trunk pops up. How about it? Isn’t it very simple?”
The car expert explained another hack that drivers need to know if the gear won’t go in.
He continued: “Don’t worry too, let’s take this holster off it. Do you see it? The yellow one inside is the emergency switch. Push it down. Press down lightly. This way, you can put in gear without stepping on the brakes.
“After hanging up, let’s put this holster on it again. That’s it.”
He then went on to explain how to change the mirrors in the rearview.
“Take a key from under this lens. This light pry, you see, this can give it. Take it off and then spend a few pounds only to buy a new lens like this.
“Push in lightly. When you hear the beep, it means it has been replaced.”
The video has gone viral with more than 4.8million views and 1,126 comments.
Users were left stunned after discovering these amazing hacks.
One said: “I just saved myself 150 pounds.”
Another said: “Great advice given.”
This comes after a man has claimed he’s come with a cleaver cleaning hack which means drivers will never have to pay for a car wash again.
Plus, a motoring expert claimed he has a “magic hack” which can remove surface scratches from cars, but not everyone is convinced.
